British bishops' spokesman welcomes tougher rules on assisted suicide
Catholic World News - February 26, 2010
Archbishop Peter Smith of Cardiff, Wales, has welcomed new guidelines for prosecution in cases of assisted suicide, saying that the rules provide greater protection for the vulnerable. The archbishop said that the new guidelines, which provide for investigation of all cases involving assisted suicide, ensure that "no one is being given immunity from prosecution." The guidelines focus on the motivations of the person who assists in a suicide, and eliminates the presumption that a spouse or family member is acting in the best interests of the suicide victim.
